But to the dismay of Texans and traditional chili con carne lovers around the world, the success of chili is what has changed it forever. Many cities around the country have annual chili cook-offs, and it is competition that brings out the new creative flavorings many have come to love. Among these newer tastes are “White Chili” which has white beans, a light creamy sauce frequently based on sweet mild Anaheim green chili peppers with chicken.
In the last few decades, Cincinnati chili has spread its wings and spread across the country with restaurants serving their hearty mix over of all things, spaghetti. Cincinnati style restaurants offer their famous 5-Way Chili:
2-Chili over spaghetti
3-Chili over spaghetti, with cheese
4-Chili over spaghetti, with cheese and onions
5-Chili over spaghetti, with cheese, onions, and beans
To date there are no recorded incidences of clashes between Texas chili con carne factions and Cincinnati chili factions, but if you’ve ever gotten a dirty look from a Texan when ordering your chili with beans, just imagine the look if you ordered it on top of your spaghetti.
For chili lovers who aren’t near any of the finer chili restaurants throughout the United States, there are many brands of canned chili to satisfy your need until that can be remedied.
The top selling brands of canned chili are:
Hormel Chunky (with beans)
Wolf Brand Chili (Homestyle)
Amy’s Organic Chili (Medium-Vegetarian)
Dennison’s (No Bean Chili)
Campbell’s Chunky Roadhouse Chili
All this talk of this rich, spicy, beefy concoction is capable of stirring up a powerful craving, so go out and enjoy your favorite chili today.
